Included in the plan are 308 new four-wheeled vehicles to replace the Army's Land Rovers, a multi-mission ship and three offshore patrol vessels able to operate a helicopter, 105 LAV-III armored personnel carriers (previously ordered), upgrades for the P-3K Orion patrol planes, upgrades or replacements for the C-130 transport planes, replacement of the UH-1H helicopter fleet, replacements for the Boeing-727 transport planes.
